Florida Experts Featured in ‘Coaching’ Session and Much More at Orlando IT Services Event

Don’t miss out on your chance to be part of this transformative experience.

For small to midsized MSPs seeking targeted advice and connections with key industry vendors, make sure you mark your calendars for April 10-11.

That’s when ChannelPro LIVE: Orlando will be happening in person in the City Beautiful — at the Marriott Orlando Airport Lakeside. This is the second of ChannelPro’s eight dynamic events scheduled throughout the United States in 2024: seven ChannelPro LIVE gatherings and the ChannelPro DEFEND cybersecurity-centric event this summer.

ChannelPro’s regional events are focused exclusively on the educational and networking needs of small and midsized MSPs, VARs, and IT Consultants. All events are FREE for qualified channel partners.

Sunshine State Specialists

A big highlight of ChannelPro LIVE: Orlando will be the MSP Matchmaking session on April 10. This special session will feature Florida-based experts offering coaching and advice targeted to IT professionals:

  • Manuel Palachuk, owner and president of Clearwater-based Manuel Palachuk International, will focus on peer networking.
  • Rayanne Buchianico, founder and CEO of Clearwater-based ABC Solutions LLC, will talk about mergers and acquisitions.
  • Orlando’s own Carlos Perez, principal of Perez Technology Group, will offer tips on vendor selection.

“The lineup for ChannelPro LIVE: Orlando features local business leaders who have their finger on the pulse of the Southeast market and the dynamics that drive customer acquisition, retention, and business growth,” said Michael Siggins, founder of The ChannelPro Network. “Plus, our events always provide attendees with an avenue to grow their peer networks, and offer a glimpse into the technologies and solutions that will help them prepare their customers for the future.”

The MSP Matchmaker coaching format debuted in February, drawing rave reviews during ChannelPro LIVE: Chicago in Schaumburg, IL.

“I liked it was very fast-paced, so there wasn’t a lot of downtime,” said Wisdom McNabb, business development representative at Wyant Technologies. “Everyone was just up there, ready to do their spiel. And it was very community-oriented. I like that.”
